Stop Trying To Do Everything By Yourself!

January 9th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, do you realize the Lord desires to be your guide?  He desires to lead and guide you according to His perfect will.  He desires to grant unto you all you will ever have need of.  While praying this morning, the Lord instructed me to pass along this message.  Beloved,

Stop Trying To Do

Everything By Yourself!

Do you not know God is aware of your needs?  Do you not know God will put people in your life to bless you?  You are not alone in this matter.  Whatever you are dealing with this morning, understand God has a plan perfectly designed for you.

The Times When Your Heart Hurts

January 8th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever had your feelings hurt by someone you loved, adored and admired?  If it came down to it, you would do whatever it took to assist this person.  No matter how other people felt about this person, you could always see the good inside.  What do you do when that person hurts you?  The person you entrusted with personal secrets.  The person you called your “best friend until the end.”  The person you often entertained at your home.  The person you considered your prayer partner.  Have you ever found yourself stuck between continuing the friendship and ending it?  Your flesh desires to hold on, but your spirit knows it is time to let go.  While you believe things can eventually change, you know where God is taking you this person is not apart of the package deal.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My friend, how do you handle The Times When Your Heart Hurts?  Those times when internally you are breaking down and there appears to be no relief in sight.  Those times when you smile in everyone’s face but within you are screaming for someone, anyone to assist you.  Life has a way of throwing “hell storms” (not hailstorms) your way.  Life has a way of dropping you to your knees.  I have learned during the times when my heart hurts or has been hurt to do three things: 1.) I instantly pray to the Lord.  By praying I am letting God know I have been wounded.  2.) I ask the Holy Spirit to help me!  By doing this I am sending a message that I need immediate help.  3.) I pray for the person who hurt me.  By doing this, I am able to start the healing process.  The Bible declares in Matthew 5:44 - But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;

My brother, my sister, who hurt you?  Who left you wounded?  Was it a friend?  A family member?  A spouse or significant other?  Was it something you did to yourself?  In order for you to experience the full manifested healing God has for you, now is the time for you to be honest with yourself.  You have been hurt.  No longer can you or should you act as if it did not hurt you.  It is time to let it out.  During The Times When Your Heart Hurts, allow God to do spiritual surgery on you first.  The Bible declares in Luke 6:27 - But I say unto you which hear, Love your enemies, do good to them which hate you.  Today is your day to start healing.  Beloved, the healing can start right where you are.  My Prayer For You Today: Father, allow my brother/sister to be honest with himself/herself.  At that point, begin to heal him/her from the root.  In the name of Jesus … Amen!

Stop Letting People Upset You!

January 5th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, once again here’s a short and direct devotional for today.  Beloved,

Stop Letting

People

Upset You!

When we allow what people say, how they feel about us, or their opinions toward us affect our behavior, we give them power and control over us.  There will be times when you will experience hurt and pain, as the result of other people, but you must learn how to deal with the situation without allowing people to get the best of you.  Remember: no one can upset you unless you allow them.

Stop Complaining So Much!

January 4th, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, here’s another short and direct devotional.  While praying this morning, the Holy Spirit pressed this heavily within my spirit.  Beloved,

Stop Complaining

So Much!

Philippians 2:14 - Do all things without murmurings and disputings:

By complaining, you are sending a message to God that you do not believe He can change whatever it is.  If you know He can, why spend time griping and moaning about it.  Could it be possible that the thing you are complaining about is not God’s will for you?  Hmmmm!

Lord, I Need You Right Now!

January 3rd, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  My brother, my sister, today’s devotional will be short and direct.

  • Before you make another decision,
  • Before you attempt another assignment,
  • Before you put together another program,
  • Before you start your car in the morning,
  • Before you allow worry to consume your thoughts and your body,
  • Before you get upset when friends and family members betray you,
  • Before you allow the doctor’s report to discourage you,
  • Before you say, “I Do”,
  • Before you sign your name to another document,

Stop long enough to say …

Lord, I Need You Right Now!

God is available to assist us, but we must open up and let Him in!

Don’t Deny It, Receive It!

January 2nd, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.   My brother, my sister, have you started your day with a defeated mindset?  Are you already thinking defeat?  While praying this morning, I had to remind myself that God has not given me the spirit of fear, but power, love and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).  Do you realize it is the Lord’s will for each of us to enjoy complete peace?  Peace in the midst of confusion and chaos.  Peace when no one else desires for us to have it.  Peace when things appear upside down.  Often times our days start out rocky, not because of attacks or traps, but sometimes it is because of us.  We speak ourselves out of open doors.  We discourage ourselves a lot!  We tell ourselves what we cannot have.  We pray and believe God for breakthroughs, but when they come we find a reason not to receive them.

Under the obedience of the Holy Spirit of God, I come to you to speak directly into your spirit.  Beloved, stop allowing your past mistakes to cause you to walk in fear.  Stop feeling as though past decisions will come back to haunt you.  Stop thinking because no one else in your family ever had it, you do not deserve it.  The devil is a liar.  What God has for you, is YOURS!  My friend,

Don’t Deny It, Receive It!

Stop allowing yourself to be a hindrance.  We can be our greatest roadblock.  We can be the very people, which stop us from enjoying all God has for us.  Sometimes it is not the enemy fighting you, it is you fighting you!

CHECK YOURSELF!

January 1st, 2018

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  My brother, my sister, have you become comfortable with life?  Have you stopped trying to learn more from the Lord?  Do you think you have arrived in life?  Have you become egotistical?  Have you forgotten to acknowledge the Lord in all you do?  Are you acting as if it is all about you?  Have you allowed people to put you on a pedestal and idolly worship you?  Have you forgotten Jesus and all He has done for you?  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  I know there are times when you feel as if everything and everyone is working against you.  You feel as if you are fighting opposition on every side.  The Lord is aware of your feelings.  However, I have been sent this morning to declare that today is the day for “SELF EVALUATION!”  Beloved, the Holy Spirit told me to tell you to …

CHECK

YOURSELF!

The Bible declares in Matthew 7:1-5 - Judge not, that ye be not judged. 2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again. 3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother’s eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye? 4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye? 5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother’s eye.

Today, before you judge someone else, before you condemn someone else, before you point out someone else’s faults, take a look at yourself!

Now Is The Time and This Is The Place!

December 29th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  How often do you stop and think about all the Lord has done for you?  How often do you meditate on the goodness of the Lord?  How often do you testify to others about the many things God has done for you?  How often do you reminisce about the mistakes you have made and how God continues to give you additional chances?  How often do you think and then thank the Lord?  So often in our lives, we spend most of our energy on matters that should not get much attention.  We spend more time gossipping about folks instead of encouraging them.  We spend time judging others instead of praying for them.  Do you realize out of all the things you have done wrong, the Lord still desires to use you?  There’s someone, somewhere in need of your testimony.  All that God brought you out of is not for you alone, but to strengthen someone else.

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Many times people remain in hiding until after God has delivered them from what they’re going through.  No, no!  Even in the midst of what you are going through, God still wants you to witness to others.  No you are not perfect, but you should still be a witness of His goodness.  We are all still here because the Lord has seen fit to allow it.  Now is not the time for a pity party.  Now is not the time to give the devil credit.  Now is not the time to run in fear.  Now is the time for you to stand boldly and speak the Word of God.  Now is the time to testify about the goodness of Jesus.  The Bible declares in Luke 19:40 - And he answered and said unto them, I tell you that, if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.   My friend, Now Is The Time and This Is The Place! 

My brother, my sister, why are you keeping the goodness of God to yourself?  Why are you allowing the world or the things of the world to keep you from proclaiming the promises of God?  If God has been good to you, why not tell someone?  The Bible declares in 1 John 1:9 - If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.  Beloved, we have made a lot of mistakes.  We have been places we should not have been.  We have done things we should not have done.  We’ve had traps set for us that the Lord exposed just in time.  Now Is The Time and This Is The Place!  God has you right where He wants you.  You can run no more.  You can no longer do things your way.  It is time for you to put up or shut up.  What will it be?  My Prayer for You Today: Father, I pray that my brother/sister will realize how good You have been for him/her?  I pray (s)he will not give up but get up, in the name of Jesus … Amen!

God Is The Main Source!

December 28th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  My brother, my sister, what are you believing God for today?  What are you seeking from the Lord?  What have you been praying for?  Do you believe God can grant it unto you?  Do you believe God hears and answers prayers?  This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Many times we pray to our God for things we deem important to us, but inwardly we are wavering in our faith.  You are 90% sure God can do it, but the other 10% still second guesses His abilities.  If you would be honest with yourself, you know there are times when you experience doubt.  Beloved, I want to tell you what the Spirit of God told me.  God can use anyone to bless you, but … 

God Is The Main Source! 

Whatever you are believing God for will only come by way of Him.  While it is true, God can use anyone or anything to bless you, it all starts and ends with the Lord.  Child of God, do not give up on what you are believing God for.  If it lines up with His will, you have the right to expect it.  The Bible declares in Isaiah 40:31 - But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

What You Need Comes From Above!

December 27th, 2017

It’s a wonderful day to be a child of God.  Have you ever found yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place?  At this current point in your life you are stuck between two opinions.  Both sound good but you do not know which one to choose between.  If you commit to one, there is a chance it may be the wrong one.  What do you do?  How do you handle this situation?  Have you ever had people wanting to always give you advice?  “If it were me …” is the familiar line you always hear.  Out of nowhere you have advice specialist wanting to tell you what to do, how to do it and when to do it.  With a concern of disappointing others, you endure each person’s advice.  Have you ever been there?  Are you there now?

This morning, I have been commissioned to come and minister to you.  Do you realize while God has blessed each of us with family and friends, He never meant for any of them to replace Him in your life?  No matter how wonderful the advice sounds, if it does not line up with the Will of God you need not commit to it.  Often times we make the mistake of allowing others to force our hand.  Through their manipulations and intimidations we give in.  Understand this, any person who tries to force you to do anything is a witch (working for the devil.)  Any person who loves you and loves the Lord Jesus Christ should never try to force their will or advice on you.  My friend, What You Need Comes From Above!  The Bible declares in Matthew 6:33 - But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.  Before you say ‘yes’ to it, you need to make sure God has given His nod of approval.

My brother, my sister, what decision are you preparing to make?  What question needs an answer right away?  Have you taken the time to consult the Lord about it?  If yes, have you waited to receive an answer?  If no, what are you waiting on?  Beloved, please understand, God is our Father and in being our Father, He desires to commune and fellowship with His children.  The Bible declares in  John 4:23 - But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Fatherseeketh such to worship him.  Child of God, What You Need Comes From Above!  No one else has what you need but the Lord.  I do not care how many promises people make, no one else has what you need but the Lord.  Seek Him now!  Prayer for Today: Father, I need Your help in __________.  Please tell me what to do.  In Jesus name … Amen!
